Bad company poor ethics

published

I checked with budget direct (in writing) that I was covered before I cancelled my flights due to Covid. Come claim time they reject it on the basis I was 2 days early before 1 set of government advice even though smart traveller recommended 3 days before do not travel. They are a shifty company do not use them. Luckily Qatar airways agreed to give me a full refund otherwise I would have fought this.
Don't use Budget Direct

do not use budget direct Travel insurance

published

I had to make all the phone calls and send numerous emails for budget direct to the German debt collection agency as $1500 of bills hadn't been paid after 5 month after my accident in germany sep 2019.
my carpet cleaning bill for the blood stains on my sisters carpet was not reimbursed 'as it happened in a family members home" so I am out of pocket there for $260. one of the staff members mentioned that for sorting out their mess for them and making all these phone calls to germany for them ,they might look into reimbursing me for the carpet cleaning. NO SUCH LUCK!!!

Poor response to reasonable request

published

Exactly the same issue as Serena. Paid for this to start in May and have asked if it can be deferred only option is to totally cancel and get a refund ... very eager to do that as the policy was paid for before they changed their PDS and covers multiple trips we have planned. Will be seeking legal advice. I suppose in this awful time there is an opportunity for corporates to show their true colours and this will enable us to make choices going forward on who put customers first and who didn’t.

Goog all round policy easy to understand hopefully easy to claim if something goes wrong. Had all the inclusions that I need and none of the stuff that I would otherwise pay for and don't need

Each time and each new place you travel you get charged extra.

published

12months cover. Each country in that time should not be extra. The point of an annual Multitrip policy is that you're covered anywhere in the world for that 12 months.

Very good value

We haven’t used this company before and I was pleasantly surprised at the good quote we received for this policy. I initially received assistance from an online staff member and it then took a short time to complete the application details on line.

We have only just got our insurance

published

Our flight from Lord Howe Island was cancelled, so we were charged for extra Blue Emu parking and a motel room in Sydney, but we did not claim because it was less than $200 excess.
